  1. A Flexible Power Management System Architecture for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N09T015

    Small UUV range in size from 9"to 12.75"in diameter and are used for missions that include forward fleet reconnaissance, mine detection, inspection, oceanography, payload delivery, and communication; a flexible and modular energy storage system with advanced power management system architecture (PMSA) is needed to meet these applications. To be effective the PMSA must be developed with proper ener ...

  3. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered ...

  4. CEDAR (Complex Event Discovery, Analysis, and Ranking)

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: N10AT040

    Successful intelligence operations require the ability to anticipate enemy actions in time to prevent or mitigate their impact. These actions are often part of a complex set of events; for example, an assault on a specific place can involve planning and logistics activity as well as the coordinated movement of multiple actors. Complex event processing (CEP) techniques are a promising technology to ...

  5. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N11AT002

    As with all service branches within the Department of Defense (DoD), the mission objectives of the Navy are expanding to encompass not only major combat operations, but also asymmetric warfare scenarios. This expanding role requires the Navy to increasingly operate in littoral waters where effective identification of small craft and semi-submersibles is a critical capability for both fleet protect ...

  6. Development of Novel Phase Shifterless RF Phase Array Antenna Systems

    SBC: NOISEFIGURE RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N09T035

    In recent years the usage of phase arrays in wireless communications has found significantly increased interest, partly due to their ability to enhance system sensitivity and their anti-jamming capabilities. This growth of strong interests in RF phase array antenna systems for DoD applications is evident with the current and future developments of many major RADAR and military communication system ...

  7. Electro-Optical and LIDAR Sensor Fusion for Self-Calibrating, Low-Cost UGV Perception

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: N11AT020

    Sensor fusion allows a robot to overcome many of the drawbacks of individual sensors, but such techniques require precise calibration of all sensors. In support of the Navy's requirements to develop low-cost and robust sensors, TRACLabs and SwRI propose to design and demonstrate a combined EO/LIDAR perception system that facilitates improved autonomy for UGVs. We call this system LEOPARD (for ...

  8. Full Spectrum Zinc Oxide Nanowire Sensors By MOCVD


    Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) with its partner, Drexel University, propose to build upon our Phase I success and continue the development of electrically contacted zinc oxide nanowire (NW) arrays for highly efficient solar blind UV sensors, and implement them in a packaged prototype product. The properties of ZnO make it a very promising material for optoelectronic devices. In partic ...

  9. High Density, High Efficiency Electrical Power Generation System for UAS Applications

    SBC: Innovative Power Solutions, LLC            Topic: N11AT009

    UAVs are carrying out missions which were once reserved to manned aircraft only. These missions require that the UAV carries more and more sophisticated equipment which consumes large amount of electric power. The power requirement vary, and sometime consist of both AC power with a fixed frequency, and high voltage DC power. As power requirement grow the need for an electrical power system which i ...

  10. High Resolution Measurement of the Flow Velocity Field in a Supersonic Jet Plume


    Modern supersonic jet aircraft engines produce a high amplitude noise field with complicated characteristics due to turbulent behaviors of the hot jet. Researchers need better understanding of the turbulent structures in the jet plume to develop treatments to engines that might reduce the noise emissions. A significant obstacle to making these simulations practical and realistic for engine design ...
